Plus I have a zillion plus small black grasshoppers that will turn into giant lubber grasshoppers very soon, and the birds don’t seem to want to eat them either! They are so plentiful, I am waiting on them to carry us away. I have a brand new yard ornament too in our front yard. It is BIG and has bull-dozer tracks. It is the new BORING MACHINE that was the butt of Commissioner Becker’s jokes at the city budget workshop. They are pushing a pipe under our street, and we are the ones who gets the BORING MACHINE parked across my front yard. It looks similar to that heavy duty piece of equipment that was stolen that is on Apopka Then and Now website, but it was a big stump grinder not a BORING machine. I saw a stump grinder at Race Track in Apopka on 436 on a trailer pulled by a pickup, this morning, but it was smaller than the one stolen, I am sure.

Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter About some of the CRA funds being used to fix the pot holes in my above posting……there is an article in the Chicago Tribune and it is titled, “Trump cuts will hurt rural small towns but residents are willing to trust him”. If you will read that article, you will see they have some problems about pot holds on their old historic brick streets, and there is a picture there in the article. So is it better to pave over the bricks, or better to fix the bricks back in the sunk in area, I don’t know? I was surprised for some reason that the town there in Okla. had brick streets. Yes, I directed you there also to show what Trump is doing to the seniors, the poor, and small towns also! I admit it! April 3, 2017 at 1:33 pm Mama Mia One improvement that is needed would be to do something about the old brick street that has sunken in on Central Av. there between the Chase Bank and the auto insurance company and doctors office. That is, Central Av. between 441 and 3rd St. Either redo the historic bricks in that bad spot, or pave the street. Something, as it is really bad and can tear up your vehicle undercarriage if you are unaware to come to a very slow approach there. Maybe some of the CRA funds could be used for that. That’s in the CRA area, I believe. Also Lake Avenue is very nice now that it has been repaved and is nice and smooth. Reply Around TownOpinionBy Suzanne KiddApopkans often boast about how they LOVE their city, and why not?  There is a lot to love!  Rolling hills, lots of greenery, great schools, etc.  And, above all, wonderful, warm neighbors always ready to lend a hand.  But, as life teaches us, love is a two-way street, demanding giving as well as getting.So, this week, while enjoying all Apopka has to offer, let’s do two things to show our love FOR Apopka:  1.  sign up to help build the new KaBoom! Playscape at Lake Avenue Park and  2.  take action to guarantee Apopka’s right to spend its CRA funds for projects that target dilapidated and neglected areas near downtown.First up, KaBoom!  In only 10 days, on Saturday, April 8th, a fantastic playscape, designed by Apopka’s children, will rise at Lake Avenue Park (Lake Avenue at Summit Street).  It’s a massive undertaking to build this playground in just ONE day!   But that’s what Rotary Club of Apopka, The Big Potato Foundation, The City of Apopka and the Independent Order of Foresters, which is funding the $90,000 cost, have worked tirelessly to make it happen for Apopka’s kids.  But, with 200 volunteers needed on build day, they’re still 40 volunteers short!So, how about it Apopka… will you step up and be one of the fabulous forty who sign-up to build?  What a great way to Show Your Love for Apopka’s kids!  Click here for complete information and Sign-Up form:   https://www.tfaforms.com/4600492Now for our CRA.We must take immediate action to ensure Apopka’s CRA retains its ability to breathe new life into long-neglected areas.  We must reach out, through call or email, to one or more of the eighteen members of the Florida House Ways & Means Committee in Tallahassee.  It’s not as scary as it sounds!  We must insist in no uncertain terms that we, as Apopka citizens, DO NOT want CRAs eliminated, or prohibited from investing in new projects after October 1st of this year.  And here’s why.A CRA is a Community Redevelopment Agency formed to target blight and neglect in a defined district by investing a portion of the property taxes generated in the district back into projects that promote economic development, affordable housing, and health and safety for the residents and businesses of that area.Although Apopka formed our CRA in 1993, it has been largely inactive for years and is just now getting back into action.  Our updated CRA Redevelopment Plan will soon be presented to City Council and, if approved, accumulated funds can begin to be spent on reimagining and reinvigorating our CRA  area, which stretches roughly from Highland Manor west to Hawthorne Avenue, and Oak Street south to 10th Street.House Bill CS/HB13, which the Ways & Means Committee is considering, will take away Apopka CRA’s ability to spend the funds at the very moment it is finally positioned to invest in the revitalization that will benefit all of Apopka.  We must not let that happen!So, how about it Apopka….will you make the call, or email the Committee members?  Go ahead, Show Your Love for a better Apopka for ALL!  Click here to connect to the Committee’s website  http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Committees/committeesdetail.aspx?CommitteeId=2924.  Click on a name for contact information or email form. Tell them “hands off my CRA!” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!

Leroy Bell rings an audacious tone in his quest for City…

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Barbara Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 I think Leroy Bell has a valid point when he states that the citizens have no say- so in the budget process. The first year Mayor Kilsheimer became mayor, he called for budget workshops to go over the budgets, line by line with his commissioners and staff. He allowed for public comment from anyone that wanted to speak about the budget. Obviously, there were citizens who disagreed with each other. I know I expressed ideas that I thought the city could save money on some of the city’s expenses. Others did also. I told the mayor I thought he was doing a good job, and that I appreciated his letting us citizens speak up and be a part of the budget process of the workshops….well, that didn’t last, as he axed the public comment at the workshops! I lost interest. I don’t care to sit for hours and be a mime. Since then, I have heard feedback reports and complaints that “only his friends got to speak”, whether true or not, I don’t know, as I didn’t go, as I lost interest……which was a total surprise to me, if his “friends” did speak, since he was so adamant that there would be no public comment at the workshops, when I went. Forget the public hearings at the council meetings, when the budget comes before the council as they, (the council) considers everything already worked out and finished. Stick a fork in it, it’s done. At least, most of the council members, no matter what the public says, offers, or objects to!

He is the same person that came in the Museum of Apopka and started yelling and screaming at the volunteers and the mayor‘s wife because a photo had been removed from the wall so the wall could be painted! You can’t make this up.. Decision Apopka 2018Editor’s Note: This is the third in a series of features on the 10 candidates running for office in the Apopka municipal elections.Apopka City Commission Candidate Feature: Seat #2 Leroy BellLeroy Bell is a firebrand.He is outspoken and candid. He shoots from the hip, speaks his mind and lets the chips fall where they may.And chips often fall.In the span of a four-minute public comment at a November 15th, 2017 City Council meeting, Bell had harsh words for Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer, his wife, a city commissioner, the Apopka Police Department, the Apopka Fire Department,  the Apopka Historical Society, and The Apopka Voice.Leroy BellBut now Bell would like to sit in Seat #2 of that same City Council.Bell is running against incumbent City Commissioner Diane Velazquez, the commissioner he had harsh words for in November, as well as challengers Alice Nolan and Alicia Koutsoulieris. And although he is brash at times in his approach, his reason for running is clear in his mind. “It came from an early age,” said Bell. I watched my father serving something bigger than himself. My father was a police officer, mechanic, pastor and community leader. I took that path. Growing up around people with a voice, and nobody listening to them. My father was the type of guy to give a voice to the voiceless. That’s what I want to be. I’m willing to serve for something bigger than myself like my father. I want to bring something to the City Council that hasn’t been there for years, and that’s the voice of the community. More than anything I want to bring the voiceless out of the shadows.” Bell was once a supporter of the administration that he now criticizes. In his viewpoint, they have not been transparent, and they have not delivered on their promises. “When this administration came in, you can say I was one of the people that drank the Kool-Aid. We took them out in the community, and they spoke with passion about things that need to be done in certain parts of the city that wasn’t done in other parts of the city. But once they were elected, they didn’t keep their word. I take people at their word, that’s why I’m high on integrity. I’ve helped plenty of people get elected. But once on the dais, they seem to be forgetful.” Bell is clearly a proponent of integrity. In fact, he named it as the most significant issue facing Apopka going forward. He believes trust can shape a future of security and prosperity. “Integrity is what keeps citizens engaged. Trust. When you gain trust, then different things begin to happen. You see the risk with first responders go down, especially with police officers. Pride comes up, cost and risks go down. When you gain trust, you get things done, and you get the things the people of this community want.”Bell wants to spearhead the idea of Apopka’s citizens taking the reins of government and becoming a much more significant voice in the future. “We the citizens have no say-so in this debacle they call a budget. We’re the citizens. We pay taxes. We should have a say-so in which direction the government is going or how fast it’s getting there. The City Council goes line by line through their budget. And then they pick this or that to add or cut… but if you had a citizen at the table they would be held accountable. It takes citizens to run the government. Not the politicians, the people.” Despite a 2017-18 Fiscal Budget at just under $125 million, and reserves in the general fund, Bell sees the City of Apopka as out of money.  “We are in a deficit, not a surplus. We’re broke. They had to borrow money to balance the budget. Where is the money going? People say the budget is balanced. The mayor said at the State of the City address that we have reserves above 20%, but then we have commissioners that aren’t his rubber stamp say were at 18%, so they don’t know where the budget is at. I don’t know where the budget is at and half the folks in the community don’t know, so where’s the money? What is the actual bottom line of the budget right now?” Bell would like to see a more substantial reserve, and his plan has community support according to his conversations with them. “I think our reserves need to be at 25%, and plenty of people in the community agree with that. Most people keep a reserve of three house payments. That’s what the City should do. If the City doesn’t have the respect for the reserves to keep three months of expenses, it should explain why they need to put their hands on the reserves. You can’t just go using the reserves like it’s your slush fund. The roof at the amphitheater would’ve been fixed by now if they didn’t mess up the reserve.” His approach to getting reserves to that amount is to go through the budget with a fine tooth comb and finding unnecessary spending. “We would go through every line of the budget and streamline it. There are duplicate services we can end. We can cut the mayor’s salary in half. We can stop doing so many studies. If you meet with the community, you don’t have to hire a consulting firm.” Like many others, Bell is in favor of slow, managed growth. And his thoughts on how to slow and control it begin from the ground up. “We are a fast-growing community, and there’s nothing wrong with that. What I want is managed growth. Growing something that is simple into something complex. But before we grow, we need to get the roads fixed. We need to lay the foundation first. You can kill a town by bringing in too many businesses. What the people want is to manage the growth so that progress doesn’t outpace their salaries.”And when it comes to jobs, salary, and training the next generation of workforce, Bell believes that lies in the current and future business owners of Apopka. “You have to have good players in business, and we have great businesses in Apopka. So we need to partner with them. We need to get employment up. We start there. We get businesses to start pilot programs to hire and train the kids in their industry. That gives the next generation careers not just jobs. And when we do bring new business into Apopka, we make sure they are good stewards. Make sure they pay a living wage. Make sure they have healthcare for their employees. Then when homes start getting built, people can afford them.”He also believes that building the roads of today’s Apopka will pay dividends in the future, and protect the budget reserves he wants to establish. “Before we grow let’s get some sustainable infrastructure in place. This is where I can cut some more money in future budgets. You can put a Band-Aid on a problem instead of fixing it, and somewhere down the line, you’ve got to come back, and spend more of the reserve, because it wasn’t in the budget. It’s a lot of wasteful spending, and that’s where slowing growth and making sure you do it the right way is how you responsibly manage growth.” Bell’s first crusade into local causes came over 20 years ago after he moved back to Apopka, and it would shape his attitude about community advocacy forever. “In 1997 when I returned to Apopka, I noticed the dump was wide open right next to my mother’s house. You could see all the trash and birds and rodents… and there was a bad smell, and it seemed no one was doing anything about it. So my wife and I… and a local physician started fighting against the dump. Finally, we got them to close one of them early, but then we found out a lot is going on down there. Just in that area, you probably had 200 people die in the last 10 years from various respiratory causes. They have all kind of toxic places around there like medical waste, and you have the Apopka Wastewater Facility down there. It might be better, but sometimes people can’t come outside because of the smell. It’s sad to see you can’t do anything. Your hands are tied. So that’s where I got my passion. That’s where the spark plug comes from. In fights like that where people’s lives are on the line.” And despite his passion for the South Apopka community, Bell says he would be a commissioner for everyone. “I see myself as a champion for all of Apopka. My call is for all people. I just left the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – Dreamers) meeting at the Hope CommUnity Center. I’m a champion for that. I speak out for the farmworkers. I’m for anybody that doesn’t have a voice. I guess I’m just crazy and loud enough that I’m not afraid to speak up.” And it is that loud, crazy, fearless description that Bell attributes to himself that is unusual for a would-be city commissioner where a diplomatic approach is often the norm for governance, but Bell is confident he can work with anyone on City Council or staff for the betterment of the community. “I can get along with anybody, especially for a common cause. We as people should be able to agree on some things, but some things we won’t. But we can always agree to disagree and come together. The blueprint of the City of Apopka starts with the citizens at the top, the City Council in the middle, then the administration at the bottom. I think the city would be much better off if they started using that blueprint rather than the citizens at the bottom, the City Council in the middle, and the administration at the top. So yes I would work well with anybody. I was a 12-year veteran of the US Army. I worked with 5,000 men at one time that was in my command. I can get along with people, but to get along with me best is to get along and do what the citizens are saying.” If elected, only time will only tell if Bell could transition from outspoken advocate to consensus-building commissioner, but at the end of the day, he is far more focused on the substance of his issues, than the tone he sets or the feathers he may ruffle. “I’m a servant. I want to serve the people; I just don’t show up for photo-ops. I’m a person that is concrete and tangible. I’m direct. I’m not abstract. I’m somebody you can touch. And that’s the way I’m running my campaign.” February 23, 2018 at 6:44 am Reply I keep hearing that the city is in trouble financially. I don’t know if it is true or not. What I can tell you is, I am concerned, as my husband has a pension with the city, and it is concerning to us. I have heard of other cities, in other states, that have gone bankrupt, and that those cities couldn’t pay out their pensions, their employee salaries, and their bills, so of course, we are concerned, as we don’t know what would happen, if something like that did occur here in this city. It is a valid concern to us. Mama Mia Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! 3 COMMENTSlast_img read more

On this day in history: The United States declares its independence

first_imgThe Declaration of Independence was largely the work of Virginian Thomas Jefferson. In justifying American independence, Jefferson drew generously from the political philosophy of John Locke, an advocate of natural rights, and from the work of other English theorists. The first section features the famous lines, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The second part presents a long list of grievances that provided the rationale for rebellion. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Mama Mia July 4, 2018 at 1:04 pm Most colonists continued to quietly accept British rule until Parliament’s enactment of the Tea Act in 1773, a bill designed to save the faltering East India Company by greatly lowering its tea tax and granting it a monopoly on the American tea trade. The low tax allowed the East India Company to undercut even tea smuggled into America by Dutch traders, and many colonists viewed the act as another example of taxation tyranny. In response, militant Patriots in Massachusetts organized the “Boston Tea Party,” which saw British tea valued at some 18,000 pounds dumped into Boston Harbor. Parliament, outraged by the Boston Tea Party and other blatant acts of destruction of British property, enacted the Coercive Acts, also known as the Intolerable Acts, in 1774. The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British. Happy 4th of July everyone! God bless America! Hope everyone has a great day today! Initially, both the Americans and the British saw the conflict as a kind of civil war within the British Empire: To King George III it was a colonial rebellion, and to the Americans, it was a struggle for their rights as British citizens. However, Parliament remained unwilling to negotiate with the American rebels and instead purchased German mercenaries to help the British army crush the rebellion. In response to Britain’s continued opposition to reform, the Continental Congress began to pass measures abolishing British authority in the colonies. The first major American opposition to British policy came in 1765 after Parliament passed the Stamp Act, a taxation measure to raise revenues for a standing British army in America. Under the banner of “no taxation without representation,” colonists convened the Stamp Act Congress in October 1765 to vocalize their opposition to the tax. With its enactment in November, most colonists called for a boycott of British goods, and some organized attacks on the customhouses and homes of tax collectors. After months of protest in the colonies, Parliament voted to repeal the Stamp Act in March 1766. Mama Mia Please enter your name here July 4th, 1776From the History Channel 3 COMMENTS July 4, 2018 at 12:51 pm Here is something to consider for the future….out in the west, the wildfires are totally out of control. They are burning up 1000 acres per hour! Many of the western state’s mayors have banned fireworks and firework shows due to the possibility of them causing fires, that could get out of control. There has been 869 fires due to fireworks alone, in the state of California, in just the last year! So in the city of Carefree, Arizona, the mayor of that city, has banned fireworks all together, but he was shown a video of a drone LED light show, and decided to give it a go, so the residents wouldn’t be disappointed, on the 4th of July. It is like a fireworks show, but without the fire, and is safe. The drones are bigger than a large round platter, like you would serve food off of, but are ultra-light, and made with a light black wire, and in the center is a white plastic compartment that holds the batteries for the LED lights. It is all controlled by computer programming, by a commercial company, and they can make the most complex designs, spirals, what looks just like regular fireworks designs, circles inside circles, slinky type designs, American flags, etc. on and on. And they use what looks like thousands of them! This was featured on the CBS Evening News, and the CBS Overnight News too. Check it out! I know in the past, some cities had switched to laser light shows, but this is even cooler. The city of Carefree, Arizona might post a video of tonight’s show, I don’t know. I wonder what the costs are for that kind of a nighttime LED drone show? With the other colonies watching intently, Massachusetts led the resistance to the British, forming a shadow revolutionary government and establishing militias to resist the increasing British military presence across the colony. In April 1775, Thomas Gage, the British governor of Massachusetts, ordered British troops to march to Concord, Massachusetts, where a Patriot arsenal was known to be located. On April 19, 1775, the British regulars encountered a group of American militiamen at Lexington, and the first shots of the American Revolution were fired. I heard someone reporting the news on tv, say that the Lake Eola swans like the fireworks….really? Well then, they must be the ONLY birds on the planet that enjoy them, if that is the case! There are 3 different firework tents that have them for sale, heading west on 441, that I have counted, just in this area of town, and the sales tents are fairly close to each other. One next to the Family Dollar Store, one set up at the old Plymouth Woodshed restaurant that is for sale, and another just up the road heading toward Plymouth or Zellwood, not counting all the others around the rest of Apopka! They got permits to sale the fireworks, under the sale of sparklers….ha ha! Reply center_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Reply In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Continental Congress adopts the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims the independence of the United States of America from Great Britain and its king. The declaration came 442 days after the first volleys of the American Revolution were fired at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts and marked an ideological expansion of the conflict that would eventually encourage France’s intervention on behalf of the Patriots. Mama Mia Please enter your comment! On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted to approve a Virginia motion calling for separation from Britain. The dramatic words of this resolution were added to the closing of the Declaration of Independence. Two days later, on July 4, the declaration was formally adopted by 12 colonies after minor revision. New York approved it on July 19. On August 2, the declaration was signed.

Yet to come were the Patriot triumphs at Saratoga, the bitter winter at Valley Forge, the intervention of the French, and the final victory at Yorktown in 1781. In 1783, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris with Britain, the United States formally became a free and independent nation. In January 1776, Thomas Paine published Common Sense, an influential political pamphlet that convincingly argued for American independence and sold more than 500,000 copies in a few months. In the spring of 1776, support for independence swept the colonies, the Continental Congress called for states to form their own governments, and a five-man committee was assigned to draft a declaration.

How aging affects sleep

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear The Secrets of Sleep: Part 6From Florida Hospital Apopka TAGSFlorida Hospital – ApopkaSleep Previous articleCookies and Milk with a Cop coming next weekendNext articleWhy vaccine opponents think they know more than medical experts Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR July 14, 2018 at 7:05 pm 1 COMMENT As we get older, just about every aspect of our body undergoes changes. Sleep is no exception.Where we once might have naturally stayed up late, our bodies become ready for sleep earlier at night. In the past, sleeping late on weekends may have been one of life’s little pleasures; now, you find yourself waking up even before the rooster crows.These changes tend to be a normal part of the aging process, stemming from shifts in our circadian rhythm – the body’s internal sleep-wake clock.We don’t know exactly why our sleep habits change as we age, says sleep expert and neurologist Holly Skinner, DO. One possible explanation lies in changes to a part of our brain called the “suprachiasmatic nucleus,” which regulates sleep and other body rhythms.Contrary to common belief, older people don’t require less sleep than young or middle-aged adults. The amount of sleep your body needs stays about the same throughout adulthood, but the “architecture” of that sleep undergoes significant shifts.“As we get older, our daily schedules are often not as regimented as they once were, so older adults may be more likely to nap during the day,” Dr. Skinner says. “This can result in difficulty falling asleep or, more commonly, sleep that’s interrupted by nighttime awakenings.”Sometimes, though, sleep disturbances fall outside of what’s considered normal for older adults. Unfortunately, sleep disorders become more common as we age, with an estimated 50% of the elderly population reporting difficulty falling, or staying, asleep.Here are some of the common sleep problems that older adults often face:Advanced sleep phase syndrome. If your circadian clock seems to have fallen out of sync, and you find yourself going to sleep and waking at unusually early hours, you may have advanced sleep phase syndrome. Patients with this sleep disorder may hit the sack as early as 6 or 7 p.m., rising again at the pre-dawn hours of 3 or 4 a.m. While your body still gets the necessary amount of sleep, the timing of it can be a serious disruption to your quality of life.Obstructive sleep apnea. Any person, at just about any age, can develop sleep apnea. But our likelihood of developing this dangerous disorder increases with age due to a number of natural changes to the throat area. Snoring is a top indicator of sleep apnea, but snoring also tends to increase with age – so the disorder can sometimes go undiagnosed.Insomnia. Rates of insomnia are higher in older adults. Studies show that around 44% of older persons experience one or more symptoms of insomnia at least a few nights per week.Restless leg syndrome (RLS). Another sleep disorder that increases with age, RLS is characterized by a pulling, creeping or tingling sensation in the legs. This results in a strong urge to move the limbs, making it difficult to drift off to sleep.Increased time to fall asleep. Find yourself tossing and turning for what seems like an eternity before finally falling asleep? You may be suffering from sleep latency, a common problem for older adults.Increase in sleep fragmentation. Many older adults who formerly slept like rocks may find themselves suddenly waking up at the smallest sound – or, frustratingly, for no reason at all. The rapid eye movement (REM) sleep phase also decreases in older adults, making for lighter, less restorative sleep. Both of these issues can result in daytime grogginess.In some cases, sleep changes may be a result of underlying medical conditions or taking certain medications. Your doctor will be able to review your medical history and current drug regimen to identify possible causes and get you back on track for better sleep.“Medications that cause sleepiness as a side effect can be switched, often resulting in a dramatic improvement,” Dr. Skinner says.In other cases, a sleep study or a visit with a sleep medicine specialist may be needed to learn whether your symptoms are caused by obstructive sleep apnea, another sleep disorder or an unrelated cause.There are a few things you can try at home to encourage better sleep, too. Engaging in light physical activity (think stretching, walking, yoga or swimming) is beneficial to your overall health, and it can also help prepare the body for sleep. Increased exposure to light during the day may also help get your body’s circadian clock back in sync.“Dietary changes, such as avoidance of alcohol and caffeine after lunch, may be beneficial, as well,” Dr. Skinner says.The takeaway: sleep patterns change as we age, but older adults should not accept insufficient or unsatisfying sleep as a fact of life. With the support of your medical team and the Florida Hospital Center for Sleep Disorders, there’s a good chance you can be sleeping soundly again – if not like a baby, then something close to it. If I work hard out in the heat mowing, or have been running errands all day out and about, or have had a full meal, I will settle down to watch tv afterwards, and the next thing I know, I am out like a light. I have to cat nap for at least three or four hours, as I will turn into a walking zombie, and have severe brain fog, if I don’t get my cat nap. Nyquil does the same thing to me, if I take it, it puts my brain to sleep, and turns me into a total zombie. I don’t need it though, as I could sleep and sleep and sleep hours on end, without any meds. That guy in the photo looks so comfy with his dog upon him, that is what I do, nap with my dog upon me……ZZZZZZZZ You have entered an incorrect email address!

Jonah Lomu comeback for Marseilles-Vitrolles

first_imgWednesday Nov 25, 2009 Jonah Lomu comeback for Marseilles-Vitrolles Jonah Lomu made his much anticipated return to rugby on the weekend as he turned out for his new club Marseilles-Vitrolles in the French Third Division.Lomu, now 34, has battled with illness an injury for many seasons now, was the major drawcard as 2500 people and over 100 media personal flocked to the ground to watch Lomu’s new team thrash Montmelian 64-13.Jonah didn’t do much in the match, and apparently looked nervous and unsure of himself. He was playing at centre, and said he actually struggled with the language, which hindered his play.“It was a little difficult to understand my team-mates who were talking very fast in French,” said Lomu. “I asked them to speak a little less quickly. I have to gain in confidence, and to communicate better with them. I did feel a bit lost on the pitch at times.”Lomu enjoyed the occasion nevertheless. “This was the first match, I was not expecting a miracle. My welcome was extraordinary, as much from the public as from my team-mates,” he said.Lomu’s new home in Marseilles is just a few minutes from the hotel the New Zealand team are staying at ahead of their meeting with France. Former Wellington teamate Ma’a Nonu says they’re eagerly anticipating a visit from the legendary All Black.“He’s still got that respect. The boys hold him in high regard. He’s always going to be a legend in every kid’s eyes. It will be good to have him around,” Nonu said.“Jonah’s one of those big fellas that looks after the young guys. He used to live in Maupuia, the big orange house on the hill. That was Jonah’s castle.“I just lived down the road in Miramar and he used to pick me up for training. I was pretty lucky … He had a few nice cars too.“He’s a generous guy, a big giant that’s always friendly. Everyone loves him,” Nonu said. We had requests for footage of Jonah’s return, so here it is. It doesn’t feature much action from him at all, as he had a pretty quiet match, but it does show the hype that surrounds everywhere he goes. There’s also a pretty decent hand off. French speakers, this ones for you. :: Related Posts :: Jonah Lomu finds success with bodybuilding Time: 02:00 Note: Thanks for france3.frADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Guinness Premiership Pick of the Week – Round 17

first_imgFriday Mar 12, 2010 Guinness Premiership Pick of the Week – Round 17 As the week comes to a close weve got something a bit different for you now. Its different in the way that its not been done for the Guinness Premiership before, but today things change as we have a crack at the Pick of the Week for Round 17.There were some pretty good tries scored in Englands premier domestic competition. For Harlequins their only try of the match was scored after some fantastic build up work against Worcester before Mike Brown barged over. The try was credited to Rory Clegg, who had a great day with the boot, but he admitted it wasnt him who scored it.“I was credited with our try but, while I’ll take it, I have to admit it was Mike Brown who got it down, Clegg said. Young Miles Benjamin returned the favour for Worcester.At Welford Road we saw Leicester and London Irish battle it out, as featured here on RD, with Scott Hamilton scoring the try of the match after a scintillating Lote Tuqiri break. Fan favourite Martin Castogiovanni also crossed, with an interception try.Sale slipped to the bottom of the table as they went down 15-7 to Northampton Saints at home. Their only highlight was a nice try finished off by former England international Ben Cohen.Rob Vickerman scored for Newcastle when they hosted Bath, but it wasnt enough as the home side went down 17-13 after two second half tries from the visitors.Two of the best tries of the weekend came from the Wasps match against Gloucester. Mike Tindall scored a great try as he broke the line and showed he still has a bit of pace and a great step to finish the try.The home side won 24-19 thanks to 19 points from flyhalf Dave Walder, but there was a sensational try from Samoan flyer on the left wing, David Lemi. Enjoy the compilation.
